About the Care Van Program
Established in 1991, the Caring Foundation of Texas is a 501(c)3 organization, funded by community contributions, corporate sponsorships, foundation grants and in-kind donations. The foundation's signature program is the Care Van® Program which provides access to immunizations, oral care and health education for uninsured and medically underserved children at no cost to their families. "Care Vans" are uniquely designed to eliminate barriers that commonly prevent children from receiving on-time, age-appropriate immunizations and dental care in traditional health care settings.  Care Vans travel to schools, churches, shopping malls and community events to conduct health outreach services. Additionally, through extended health education collaborations, the Care Van Program helps provide health, hygiene and wellness education for children and adolescents. The program focuses on preventative health initiatives to foster healthier lifestyles for Texans.
